1) What would you start with?

2) What would be your first couple ingredients to build what item?

3) End game normal items?



1) Vamp Scepter or Dagger

2) Malady first (vamp + dagger) followed by Merc treads (boots) followed by tri-force
(zeal + phage)
3) Tri-Force, Guinsoo's, Malady, Mercs, Madred's, IE.

I think I could pull off the triforce, malady, and mercs just about every game. So those would be my primary 3 items. What do you guys think?

I think it's closer to Sin Jhao. I haven't played him but I've heard triforce and malady are usually bad items.

Malady is always a bad item. Starks fills the role much better. Starks + Trinity is a solid basis for most physical champs.

It's actually Smith Johnson, and you should buy a dagger, then turn it into a Zerker Greaves, buy another dagger, turn it into ANOTHER Zerker Greaves, then buy a Philosopher's Stone and stack Maladies. Guarantee 13+ kills a game.

Malady is a bad item.

It seems his passive encourages to attack swiftly so Stark's Fervor is an obvious choice, also Madred's Bloodrazor late game.

Early game I wouldnt get a Vampire Scepter for anyone, you'll be healing yourself like 4-5 HP per hit or something. I'd rather Doran's Shield for better survability and getting more heals from the passive.

I'm not sure about stacking attack speed on him... it sounds like he will be more jaxlike in that he gets a lot of attack speed but AS is still good. I don't know what affect AP has on him but I could see both nashor and rageblade being viable if he has any ratios, otherwise I can see youmuu's being a key item, because it will give him CDR and the burst of AS.

Also, I'm not sure if he's a mana using champ, but if he is, he may need some mana items to be totally spammable, and sheen would be pretty good.

Looking forward to him in general, and yes, it is pronounced like "tsin jow"

Probably last whisper, stark's and lots and lots of attack speed.

Why would malady be such a bad item on him? Starks only gives 20% AS where as Malady gives 50%... And building a yosumu may not be such a bad idea. And zerk grieves are terrible on any and every hero. Merc treads all the way.
